Description Ramses Morales 2005-09-20 17:41:51 EDT
Description of problem:

portmap was compiled without linking to libwrap, rendering /etc/hosts.allow and
/etc/hosts.deny useless.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

ldd /usr/sbin/pormap (shows no link to libwrap)

The line portmap:ALL inside /etc/hosts.deny has no effect, anyone can telnet to
port 111.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Actual results:

no tcpd filtering

Expected results:

tcpd filtering

Comment 1 Ramses Morales 2005-09-20 18:13:16 EDT
I'm sorry, I just noticed that tcp wrappers were statically compiled into
portmap.  But for some reason pormap is not paying attention to /etc/hosts.deny
: portmap:ALL.
